Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Records first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera recorded a five-out save, striking out three in the process during the Cardinals' 5-4 win over the Pirates on Saturday.

The 24-year-old has long been regarded as a top-15 prospect for the Cardinals and has the pedigree of a strikeout machine. He has thrown 18.2 innings in 2020, logging a 2.89 ERA with 28 strikeouts.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Grabs fourth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera (4-1) was credited with the victory in a win over the Brewers in the second game of a doubleheader Monday, firing a scoreless eighth inning during which he issued a walk and struck out the side.

Cabrera was on the hill for the third straight day, although his Saturday appearance had been cut short due to issues with his cracked fingernail. The left-hander had then allowed an earned run over 1.1 innings Sunday against the Reds before bouncing back with Monday's strong effort. Cabrera has notched half of his four wins on the season during September, a month in which he's already compiled 12 strikeouts across 7.2 innings.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Spotty appearance in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera, who was removed from Saturday's appearance due to ongoing issues with his fingernail, allowed an earned run on a hit and a walk over 1.1 innings in Sunday's loss to the Reds. He struck out two.

Manager Mike Shildt noted issues with keeping Cabrera's replacement acrylic nail affixed were at the heart of the reliever's early exit Saturday, but with the problem resolved, he was ready to return to action Sunday. Cabrera's one run was charged to him after he left the game, and he's now yielded both of his earned runs in September over his last three appearances.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Makes precautionary exit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera will be available for Sunday's game against the Reds after being removed from Saturday's contest for precautionary reasons related to a fingernail injury, Anne Rogers of reports.

The cracked fingernail is an issue the left-hander has dealt with since spring training, and it cropped up again Saturday while throwing his warm-up pitches, so he didn't actually face a batter. Cabrera has been solid out of the bullpen with a 3.29 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 19:11 K:BB over 13.2 innings this season.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Could see save chances
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera was identified by manager Mike Shildt as a candidate to see save opportunities the rest of the season in the wake of Giovanny Gallegos' (groin) placement on the injured list, Anne Rogers of reports.

Cabrera recently moved past a cracked fingernail and just saw a streak of five consecutive scoreless appearances snapped Thursday by the Tigers. The left-hander is still sporting an impressive 3.29 ERA and solid 1.17 WHIP across 13.2 innings (12 appearances), but the one-time minor-league starter has just one save in a professional career that dates back to 2015.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Earns third win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera (3-1) picked up the win in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Twins, walking one and striking out one in a scoreless fourth inning.

He took over for Daniel Ponce de Leon after the Cards had grabbed a 5-2 lead in the bottom of the third, and Cabrera's effectiveness earned him the win from the official scorer. The southpaw has only been scored upon once in his last nine appearances, and on the year he now sports a 2.70 ERA and 19:10 K:BB through 13.1 innings, conceding only four hits during that time.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Moves past finger issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera retired four hitters -- all via strikeout -- while yielding one hit in his relief appearance Sunday in the Cardinals' 7-3 win over the Cubs.

Cabrera also recorded two outs during an appearance in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader, so his usage on back-to-back days seemingly implies that he's moved past the cracked fingernail he developed coming out of an Aug. 29 outing. The 23-year-old lefty made two starts with the big club in 2019 and was a member of the Triple-A Memphis rotation last season, but the Cardinals don't seem prepared to remove him from the bullpen anytime soon, even though the club will have a need for some extra starters over the next couple weeks with a slew of doubleheaders on tap.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Could be available by mid-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera had an acrylic nail attached to his left middle finger Monday and should be available out of the bullpen by Tuesday or Wednesday, Anne Rogers of reports.

The left-hander suffered a cracked fingernail during an appearance against the Indians on Saturday, leading to his exit from the contest. Manager Mike Shildt relayed Monday that the soreness in Cabrera's finger had already begun subsiding.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Dealing with cracked fingernail
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera left Saturday's game as a result of a cracked fingernail on his left middle finger, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Cabrera pitched one scoreless inning Saturday, allowing no hits and one walk while striking out three. However, he was unable to progress as he exited the contest with a trainer prior to the seventh inning. It's unclear whether the southpaw will miss any additional time.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Exits with trainer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera exited Saturday's game against Cleveland with an apparent injury, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Cabrera appeared to suffer an injury while warming up for the seventh inning Saturday. He left with a trainer, although the nature and severity of the issue are unclear.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Nabs second victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera (2-1) was credited with the victory in a win over the Reds on Sunday, firing two scoreless innings during which he allowed no hits and one walk.

Cabrera came on for starter Daniel Ponce de Leon with two outs in the fifth and impressively recorded six outs on just 14 pitches. The left-hander hasn't allowed an earned run in three consecutive appearances, lowering his ERA from 8.10 to 4.26 in the process.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Stuck with loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera (1-1) gave up three unearned runs and a walk while striking out two in one inning in a loss to the Reds on Friday.

Cabrera got two outs in the sixth inning before two errors allowed Eugenio Suarez to get to third base. A walk and a hit batter loaded the bases and ended Cabrera's outing, but Tyler Webb gave up a grand slam to Reds pinch hitter Matt Davidson. That was enough to give Cabrera the loss. With all three runs being unearned, his ERA dropped to 6.23 with eight strikeouts and three walks through 4.1 innings this year.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Records first MLB win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera (1-0) was credited with the victory in the Cardinals' win over the White Sox in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader despite allowing two earned runs on one hit and one walk over one inning. He struck out two.

The southpaw worked himself into some trouble after striking out Yoan Moncada to start the fourth inning, walking Yasmani Grandal and eventually surrendering a two-run home run to Eloy Jimenez that gave the White Sox a 3-1 lead. However, the Cardinals made Cabrera the pitcher of record in the visitors' half of the fifth inning with a four-run rally that gave them a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The appearance was Cabrera's first of the season after he got a late start to summer camp due to a bout with COVID-19 and then saw the team's schedule paused for over two weeks due to a coronavirus outbreak.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Recalled from alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera was recalled from the Cardinals' alternate training site in Springfield on Wednesday and is expected to join the team for an afternoon workout, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Having already endured his own bout with coronavirus this summer, Cabrera will now help shore up a roster that's been significantly depleted for the time being due to the COVID infections of multiple players. The southpaw has been been sharp during bullpen sessions and batting practice in Springfield, and he should be capable of filling a multi-inning role out of the bullpen if necessary.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Solid BP despite hard contact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera allowed a double and home run during Wednesday's live batting practice at the Cardinals' alternate training site in Springfield but was otherwise effective, Anne Rogers of reports.

The southpaw yielded the two-bagger to John Nogowski and the homer to Dylan Carlson, but reports indicate he was sharp overall. How well Cabrera is recovering from the BP session will play a part in when he's seriously considered for a move up to the active roster, with manager Mike Shildt noting "it's really just about checking off the boxes to get back into game-ready shape" with respect to both Cabrera and fellow hurler and alternate training site mate Alex Reyes.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Live BP on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera (illness) is scheduled to throw live batting practice at the Cardinals' alternate training site in Springfield on Wednesday, Anne Rogers of reports.

Cabrera and fellow hurler Alex Reyes have both been building their arms up in Springfield the last several days after positive COVID-19 tests delayed their arrivals to summer camp. Cabrera was described as "progressing nicely" by manager Mike Shildt earlier in the week and has already thrown a pair of bullpen sessions that he's recovered well from. If the live BP session goes smoothly Wednesday, Cabrera could potentially be added to the big-league roster shortly thereafter.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Doing well in Springfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera (illness) is "progressing nicely" at the Cardinals' alternate training site in Springfield according to manager Mike Shildt, Anne Rogers of reports.

Cabrera was a late arrival for summer camp after a positive COVID-19 test and was therefore left off the Opening Day roster in order to make up for lost time. He's apparently been putting his Springfield deployment to good use, having already thrown one bullpen session that he recovered well from and lining up for a second one no later than Monday. If all continues smoothly, Cabrera will move on to facing hitters in live batting practice before being considered for activation.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Cleared and playing catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera (illness) reported to camp Saturday and played catch at Busch Stadium, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

The young southpaw was absent from the first couple weeks of summer camp after testing positive for COVID-19, but he's now cleared the league's testing protocols. Cabrera may not be ready for the start of the season with less than a week until Opening Day, especially as manager Mike Shildt indicated the 23-year-old won't be rushed into game readiness.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Getting close to camp arrival?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera was described by manager Mike Shildt on Friday as "getting closer" to making his summer camp debut, Anne Rogers of reports.

Cabrera recently produced a second positive COVID-19 test after initially generating one during the team's summer camp intake process. However, Shildt's comments offer reason for optimism, although it's also important to note Cabrera would likely not be ready to pitch in the earliest stages of the regular season even if he arrived in the coming days. Shildt also noted Cabrera would not be rushed once he is on site, although anticipation is high for the southpaw due to his 96 mph fastball and a curve he focused on improving this past offseason.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Has second positive COVID test
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera produced a second positive COVID-19 test and consequently remains under quarantine, Anne Rogers of reports. "Every day that goes by that they're not here is more of a challenge," manager Mike Shildt said about the players being ready for Opening Day. "The biggest two factors will be when they get here, that alone might [impact] their ability to start the season with us, but if they do get here, we still have an opportunity to work into ... how they look and how they can get ready without the feeling of rushing."

The southpaw initially tested positive during intake screenings for summer camp, and he evidently hasn't overcome infection more than 10 days later. Shildt did report Cabrera is asymptomatic, but he'll have to test negative twice within a 24-hour span before being allowed to join the team.
